Charity-oriented program was launched in 2013. University students have organized various events and collected funds for children to meet their needs during these years. These events are mainly held in cooperation with the Armenian Relief Fund. The children of the Center have informed through letters what they dream about and what they would like to have.
Chairman of the Student Council of the Faculty of International Relations, Program Coordinator Nver Kirakosyan said: “This program has had a social character, but this year we decided to change the format. There was a need to make a transition from material to spiritual support. This refers to the psychological training. We did everything possible to ensure this. The program brought together about 30 students.”
University students spent a whole day with the ARF children. Given the fact that the Center is also involved in social work, this program was attended by students of the Faculty of Sociology (Chair of Social Pedagogy). The students were introduced to the profession characteristics, nuances, etc.
The program included entertainment, games and intellectual development as well as football for boys.
Project organizers are pleased with the initial results. The one-day meetings with the participation of university students will be continued. The Student Council has plans to organize a visit to the town of Berd, Tavush region, where students will have the opportunity to visit centers, involving children from socially vulnerable families.
